Expand the Sound of Your Drum Set!

The TMC-6 Trigger MIDI Converter makes it easy to play and trigger MIDI modules and samplers from an acoustic drum set, or expand the sound palette of electronic drum sets.

Works Great with the RT/TD-Series

When paired up with acoustic drum triggers like Roland's RT-Series, drummers can use the TMC-6 to trigger a sampler or other MIDI sound module from their acoustic set—even V-Drums TD-Series modules (except for TD-11/15). Likewise, V-Drums owners can use the TMC-6 to add more pads and cymbals via the additional trigger inputs.

6 Trigger Inputs for Maximum Versatility

The TMC-6 includes six trigger inputs compatible with all Roland drum pads or acoustic drum triggers (an FD-8/6 Hi-Hat Control Pedal can also be connected). With V-Drums technology built-in, they provide reliable and fast response, plus separate head/rim triggering with dual-trigger V-Pads like the PD-125BK/105BK/80R and 3-way triggering with the CY-15R and CY-12R/C V-Cymbals. Trigger settings can be stored to 12 User memory locations.
